Curving, Elf, and Fall: Theory: Nobody who writes a physics textbook gives any fucks 3 Legolas the Eit claims to beable to accuratel count boeemen and discen thelir hair oolor tyel w) 5 leagues away on a bright, suny day Make pprepriahe estetes and anque that Legilas must have vesy strange looking cyes, have some means of onvisal pendeption oe have made a lucky Update: Legolas pupils are about 3.5 cm wide each. Now drawing kawail Legolas on physics And they told you science was no fun. IR I'm going to do it. I'm going to hand it in Legolas's pupil size isn't the problem here, though $leagues is 17,262 miles. The curvature of the Earth means that for a person of average height, the visual horizon is less than three miles away Even if your vision is telescopic and the atmosphere is perfectly clear, you can't see around the planet. If they were standing on a hill, it would have to be at LEAST 19B feet above sea level in order to see the horizon at 17.2 miles away, with nothing tall in between. Which knowing Rohan, isnt impossible But consider Elven satellite eyeballs you mean like @sidereanuncia it's back the post that I can only imagine haunts your nightmares I shall never fiand peace Also, for what it's worth, there's absolutely no reason to believe that the curvature of Midde Earth is the same as that of Earth There's no evidence that Middle Earth curves. Yeah there is. The Silmarillion states that the world was curved after the fall of Numenor (I believe preventing access to Valinor. But Elves (among others) can travel the straight path across it So middle earth is round, but not for Elves because magic So wait, the reason he can see that far is because Elves just have the ability to ignore the curve of the earth? That's awesome. It also means that no matter how good your optics got, you would always want olf oyes manning the spyglass because they can see arbitranily far while everybody else is limited by this horizon bullshit Oh thank God, my poor elf prince has seen to0 much in this post Elves are flat-earthers This post went from amusing to horrifying, to be brought back down to amusing sprinkled in with some cannon explanation, and then you leave me here in fucking outrage Source siderearuncia What do your elf eyes see?

Arguing, Curving, and Elf: Theory: Nobody who writes a physics textbook gives any fucks Evidence Q2S.12 In J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (volume 2, p. 32), Legolas the Elf claims to be able to accurately count horsemen and discern their hair color (vel- low) 5 leagues away on a bright, sunny day. Make appropriate estimates and argue that Legolas must have very strange-looking eyes, have some means of nonvisual perception, or have made a lucky guess. (1 league3.0 mi.) Update: Legolas pupils are about 3.5 cm wide each. Now drawing kawaii Legolas on physics assignment And they told you science was no fun THEY Sciencel I'm going to do it. I'm going to hand it in Legolas's pupl size isn't the problem here, though. 5 leagues is 17.262 miles The curvature of the Earth means that for a person of average height, the visual horizon is less than three miles away. Even if your vision is telescopic and the atmosphere is peifectly clear, you can't see around the planet. If they were standing on a hill, it would have to be at LEAST 198 feet above sea level In order to see the horizon at 17.2 miles away, with nothing tall in between. Which knowing Rohan, isn t impossible But consider. Elven satellite eyeballs. you mean lke @sidereanuncia it's back, the post that I can only imagine haunts your I shall never find peace Also, for what it's worth, there's absolutely no reason to believe that the curvature of Middle Earth is the same as that of Earh sindri42 There's no evidence that Middle Earth curves Yeah there is.
